I've heard of this before.

Try resetting the car by disconnecting the battery for 15-30 minutes. And try it again

I'm also having the same issues. The driver side low beam light was not working, but the passenger side was. I bought a new bulb, plugged it in and neither was working. I removed the bulb, waited until the following morning and tried again. This time both low beams did not work, but both hi beams worked. I checked every single fuse and all work in perfect condition. Not sure what to do!

Hi!
New guy here!
I dont own a Caliber yet, but hope to soon.

I was reading this thread, and was reminded of a similiar problem I had with my '01 Ram 1500 a few years ago. (Lights acting all wonky.)

The problem was the multifunction switch in the trucks steering column, this switch controls the functions of the lights, brake lights, turn signals etc..

Does the Caliber have a similiar switch controlling the lights?

Might be worth looking into.

Welcome!

Yeah, the caliber's lights are all controlled by the left stalk.

Although alot of the functions run through a main computer now...
